date: 8/19/70 




ReNYlet to Bureau 5/21/70. 



/ l. Operations Under Consideration 



The NYO realizes that one of the most effective 
Black Nationalist propaganda operations is the sale and 
distribution of the BPP newspaper, "The Black Panther in 
the Hew York City area. 

In line with the above statement the NYO is 
C'jnsidering counterintelligence proposals which would be 
SSected against (1) the production of the BPP newspaper; 
(2) the distribution of that newspaper and (3) the use 
of information contained in particular issues for topical 
counterintelligence proposals. 

The NYO realizes the Importance of negating the , 
financial benefits coming to the BPP through the sale of / 
their newspaper. Continued efforts will be made to derive 
logical and practical plans to thwart this crucial BPP 
operation. 
2. Operations Beinr. Submitted 

On 6/12/70, an anonymous letter was sen 

iTo adg ga rters in New York City, which indicated that\ _ 

Ha. a BPP member from New Haven, Connecticut, was

4. Developments of Coun terintelligence Interests ^ 

With the return of HUEY P. NEWTON to an active 
role in the conduct of BPP matters it appears that there 
is the cossibility of exploiting the feelings of those 
BPP members who will now be put in a lesser position within 
that organization. 

Questions will arise as to source of monies used 
to raise NEWTON 's bail as well as with the apparent ease 
U was raif!£. These questions will be the source of 
future counterintelligence proposals by the NYO. 

The NYO will immediately inform the Bureau of 
any situations or developments that occur where counter- 
intelligence techniques may be used. 

No action will be taken on any counterintelligence 
proposals without prior Bureau approval.

NOTE : 

Newton has Just been released from prison and is 
anxious to re-establish his control of the BPP. The Philadelphia 
BPP has been criticized by the BPP national office possibly 
because of a prior counterintelligence operation which 
anonymously advised the national headquarters that food, clothing 
and drugs collected for BPP community programs were being 
stolen by BPP members. Members have been transferred because 
of this situation and the national office has even considered 
closing the Philadelphia Chapter. We want to keep this 
dissension going where we have uncovered a weakness In Philadelphia

To request pamphlet preparation of attached newsp'aper 
article describing anti-Semitism of New Left and Black Panther 
Party (BPP) for anonymous mailing to selected individuals and 
organizations as counterintelligence effort. fi 

Attached article from "The New York Times" highlights 1 
fear of Jews to anti-Zionism of New Left and violence-prone BPP. 
This fear is reportedly based on increasing concern that claim 
of both that their anti-Zionism represents only hostility to 
Israel as imperialistic partner of this country, is but terrify- 
ing sham for actual, abusive, hateful anti-Semitism. The concern 
is apparently sufficiently founded in fact and prevalence to " 
warrant consideration by even a liberal newspaper such as "The 
New York Times." The article documents instances in radical 
publications and presents other material which attests to this 
concern, and thus indirectly applies embarrassing anti-Semitic 
stigma to many organizations of radical New Left and BPP. 

To capitalize on same from counterintelligence aspect, 
it is felt article content can be prepared in more striking 
pamphlet format to be distributed to selected offices and 
anonymously mailed to selected individuals or organizations 
within areas where full impact of anti-Semitism on part of New 
Left and Black Panthers can bs made.

Re: Butel, S/6/70. 

It is suggested that selected field divisions 
having local BPP offices utilize Negro male and female 
employees to place calls to BPP Headquarters, specifically 
asking to talk with NEWTON. Caller could identify self 
by using name of member who had dropped out or who had 
possibly been kicked out of the Party during NEWTON'S 
imprisonment to complain about some local situation involving 
the activities of a local BPP leader which NEWTON would not 
be aware of and which would have been in variance with set 
policies of the BPP. Information obtained from informants 
or other sources involving the personal misconduct or 
dishonesty in the handling of BPP funds or other such activity 
which could be checked out by BPP Headquarters could be used 
as a legitimate complaint.

HUEY NEWTON has been free on bail during the last 

week and his activities have been closely followed by this 

office. To date he has made no move to direct the day-to- 
day activities of the BPP. 



seclusion 1 




Since NEWTON's release he has briefly visited 
National Headquarters, two of the Liberation Schools, and some 
of the Community Centers. NEWTON has given a talk to female 
members of the BPP and has given a taped interview that was 
broadcast over a Berkeley, California, radio station. It is 
contemplated that NEWTON's first public appearance will be 
8/15/70, at the Oakland, California, funeral of two convicts 
that were killed when they attempted to escape from a Marin 
County Courtroom on 8/7/70.

DOMESTIC REPORT

JULY 19704VOL. 19, No. 2 — PUBLISHED BY THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE OF B'NAl B'RITH 



The Black Panthers 



The Mack I'anthei Parly has been Ihe subject of vide 
cmttegt by the media m its four years on the Ameritan 
scene. Every as fieri of Ihe Panthers' activities, except one, 
hoi been intensitvly probed in depth and publicly described 
at length. The exception: iti attitude tmi-ard Israel, Zionism 
and Jews. 

Anti-Semitism is the ADL't primary concern and, accord' 
ingly. its tesrarch into the Black Panthers has concentrated 
on this negtrctfd \aret of the Party and of ill leadership 
and publications; all else is set forth at the background 
against which the anti iemitism is manifested. 

Introduction 

The American people embarked on the decade of the 
1970s in malaise and in a mood of anger, confronted 
by the most serious domestic challenge tince the Civil 
War — the unsolved racinl problem. 

Ftesh in limn) mind* as the decade began were the 
ominous findings and categorical imperatives for action 
recently set forth by two Presidential Commissions. In 
1967 and 19G8, the National Advisory Commission on 
Civil Disorders probed in depth the cause* of the great 
urban racial riots that had lately rocked the country. In 
I9G8 and 19G9, the National Commission on the Causes 
and Prevention of Violence studied the causes or the 
many varieties of violence that had marked American 
life in the 19C0s — assassinations, crime in the streets, 
group violence and political violence. Both Commis- 
sions, named by President Lyndon Johnson in the wake 
of shattering national events, drew essentially similar 
conclusions about the causes of the disorder and rested 
their basic recommendations for future remedial action 
on essentially similar assumptions. 

both groups found the roots of the nation's dvil dis- 
order and / violence in its unsolved radal problem and 
in the attendant social malignancies of racism, discrimi- 
nation and poverty. Both groups — the Kerner Com- 
mission and the Milton Eisenhower Commission — warn- 
ed against the racial alienation and political polarization 
that Iiad emerged as symptoms of the basic malady and 
that had produced disorder, violence, and political ex- 
tremism. , And both Commissions found the malady 
curable — if the American people had the will to attack 



it by massive social and economic programs costing 
billions and sustained over many yean. The Kerner 
Commission declared, in part: 

This it our baiic cotwlmfon: Our nation b moving toward 
two societies, one blick, one white— separate and unequal 
. . . Discrimination and segregation have long permeated 
much of American life; ihey now threaten the future of 
every American . . . This deepening racial division it not 
Inevitable. The movement tan be tevened. Choice b ttttl 
.possible ... To pursue out present course will involve the 
continuing polariutioo of the American community and, 
ultimately, the destruction of basic American value*. 

"The alternative b not blind rcptestion or capitulation 
to lawlessness. It b the realiiation of common opportunities 
fur all within a tingle society ■ . . 

"Violence cannot build a better society. Disruption and 
disorder nourish repression, not justice. They strike at the 
freedom of every dtiien. The community cannot— It will 
not -tolerate coercion and mob rule . . . 

"It is time now to turn with all ilie purpose at our com- 
mand to the major unfinished buiiness of this nation . . . It 
b lime to make good the promises of American democracy 
to all cituetu . . ." 

The Eisenhower Commission dc-hrcd: 

"... we believe that the twin objectives of the social order 
must be to make violence both utmccciury and unrewarding. 
To mike violence unnecessary, our institutions must be ca- 
pable of providing justice for all who live under Ihem-of 
giving all a satisfactoty Make in the normal life of tlie com- 
munity and the nation. To make violence unrewarding, 
our Institutions must be able to control violence when It oc- 
curs, and to do to firmly, fairly, and within the law, 

"The Freamble of our Conultulion does not speak 
merely of justice or merely of order; it embrace* both . . . 
If we are to succeed In preventing and controlling violence, 
we must achieve both of these goals " 



The Black Panther $i Background 

Extremism nurtures, and is nurtured by, our most 
serious problems. It spotlights our failure to find soht 
lions — and at the same time, ironically, makes finding 
solutions all the more difficult. 

The Black Panther Patty (BIT), so visible in the 
nation's news headlines, is an extremist by pimluct of 
our unsolved racial problem, the problem that ha* left 



If 



many black Americans iindcislandahly frustrated, angry 
and hopeless, undermining tlicir f.iiih in Itoih llic ability 
and the willingness of (lie American society to extend 
lo ilicm the political c<|iiality, economic opportunity, 
and social justice to which they ate emitted. 

As an allied revolutionary group, the HPP identi- 
fies with sirailnr regimes and mnvriiiciiis overseas, boih 
in the Connjminist world and in the so-called "Third 
World." As an example, the Panthers have formed 
mi .-illume with Al Fatah in their war against Israel. 
The lll'P has cmeigcd as die leading supporter in the 
Aniniinn black community of the Arab cause, and of 
A I Fa l :d) in particular. 

The H'ark- Panther, weekly newspaper of the parly, 
rcgulaily publishes Fatah tonnn uniques, interviews with 
Fiii.ih spokesmen, ami pio-Fatah declarations by Panther 
leaitris that fu-ipiciuly tonlain denunciations of Israel 
and Zionism, often icflerting outright hostility to jews — 
at /.■«•*. In the Panther attack upon llic "Zionist" it 
is illicit « Iimi ib.it llir target is the Jew.*

The l'.taik Panther Party was formed in the San Fr.in- 
(is* it U.iy aira dining l%fi by Ilticy P. Ncwion and 
Hobby Si-alw. It expanded rapidly dining the latter

support and respect commanded by such organirations 
as the National Association for the Advancement of 
Colored People, the National Urban League, and the 
Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The Pan- 
thers have, nevertheless, managed to gain a nationwide 
following in the last two or three yean — not only among 
blacks but among the predominantly white organizations 
of the Radical Left. V 

In addition, die drive by law enforcement agencies 
against Panther units from coast to coast has aroused, 
in responsible liberal circlet, concern thai the dvil lib- 
erties of the Panthers may have been violated and that 
the BPP has been die target of undue harassment by 
law enforcement authorities. 

These concerns reached a peak in the aftermath of 
the December A, 1969. police raid on a Panther lodging 
in Chicago during which Illinois Panther leader Fred 
Hampton and a party member were killed by police 
bullets. 

Press reports in the days following the episode cut 
serious doubts on the police claims that they had been 
met by heavy gunfire from the Panthers. Investigations 
were launched to explore the facts surrounding the 
Chicago episode that not only cost the two Panthers 
their lives, but resulted in indictments against seven 
surviving members on charge* of attempted murder. 

An official five-month investigation, carried out by a 
special Federal grand jury, aided by a VS. Department 
of Justice investigating team, issued a report on May 15, 
1970, charging that the police had grossly exaggerated 
Panther resistance in the December 4 confrontation. The 
report stated that only one shot could be attributed 
to the Panthers, while police fired anywhere from 82 
to 99 shois, including those that killed the two BPP 
members. It added: 

". . . the performance of agencies of law rnforrciiKtil, in 
this me at lean, give* some reasonable basis for public 
doulrt of ihetr efficiency or even of HVir credibility . . ." 

(In part because the Panthers involved had refused 
to testify, contending that the special grand jury was 
not composed of their "peer group," the jury said 
that it was unable to determine whether or not the 
officers involved had intentionally deprived the Panthers 
of their rights, so no indictments were returned against 
the police.)

Late in June, 1970, a Sjiccial O>ofc County prosecuior 
was appointed lo impanel a special grand jury ai>d to 
re-open the investigation into the slaying* of Hampton 
and Mark fclark, the other Panther who was killed. 
The actionjwas taken by the Chief Judge of the Cook 
County Criminal Court following petitions for »uch 
action by at number of organizations. 

Law enforcement officials around the country have 
repeatedly denied the charges of Panther leaders that 
the party has been the target of coordinated harassment. 
They point to the fact that the Panthers are an armed 
organization, and to the firearms and explosives often 
discovered in Panther installations. They cite the fact 
that since October, 1967, six policemen have been killed 
and 47 wounded in confrontations with the Panthers 
around the country, and they call attention to the slo- 
gans of "kill the pigs" in The Black Panther, as well 
as to illustrations in the paper showing Panthers killing 
policemen, usually drawn as pigs. They stale that in 
some cases, the Panthers have carried out planned am- 
hushes of policemen and other law enforcement officers. 

Law enforcement officials point out further that the 
Panthers have exaggerated the number of their members 
killed by police. On December 12, 1%9, the BPP head- 
quarters in Berkeley, Calif., issued a press release, listing 
20 Panthers they claimed were killed "in cold blood" 
by the police. Authoritative sources, carefully examined, 
indicate that 10 of the 20 so listed were killed in gun- 
fights with police officers. Of the remaining 10, four 
were killed by a rival black extremist group railed "US" 
with headquarters in Los Angeles. Two wcic found 
dead in the streets of separate cities, kilhd by persons 
unknown. Of the other four, one was killed by his 
wife, one by a store owner during an attempted holdup, 
and one died in a hospital of h.-irhim rates. The violent 
death of the fourth resulted in indictments against 14 
BPP members in New Haven, including party chairman 
Bobby Scale. 

Armed RevolitlionnricM 

The Panthers are committed to the destruction and 
overthrow of existing American society through the 
tactics of guerrilla warfare.* They regard those who 
support ihcm, regardless of color, a* allies. Their ene- 
mies — those who do not supj>ort their programs and 
tarlics — inrlude the majority of black riti/ens who be- 



•Xubtlaittiat eiidrwe of the rhetoric o\ violence employed 
try the Black Panther Party it contained in the records of the 
dnti-Pefamation League For reasons of spate, the record 
it not being reproduced in this repnrt. In Noi<em1>er, 1969,

lion On the Causes and Prevention of Violence, headed by 
Dr. Milton Eisenhower, in an AVI. report, Political Extrem-

requeued by the Commiuion'i Task Force- on Attattination 
and Political Violence, which provided a grant. 



lievc in working iox equality through the American 
democratic system and who seek integration into the 
nation's mainstream. 

The Panthers say they are engaged in the "class 
struggle" against capitalism as *ct forth by Karl Marx, 
rather than in race war. But whereas Marx saw the in- 
dustrial proletariat as the key instrument for revolution, 
the Panthers regard blacks in the "Itunpenproletarial" 
as the instrument for revolution in the United Stales, 
and themselves as the "vanguard" party in the (trugglc. 
The Panthers reject mass rioting; they seek to mobilize 
the ghetto masses for urban guerrilla warfare- True 
"Black liberation^' they «ay, will come only after a 
jtcriod of "armed struggle" and the replacement of the, 
existing system with a non-capitalist state. 

Every Panther must own a firearm and know how to 
use it, according to the organization's rules. The penalty 
for failure to do so is expulsion from the party. 

In an article, "The Corrcrt Handling of a Revolution," 
that first appeared in Thr. Black Panther of July 20, 
19G7, and that was reprinted in the May 4, 19G8 issue, 
party co-founder Hucy Newton wrote: 

"When ihc people learn that It Is no Jonger advantageous 
for them to roitt by going u> the ilrccti in large number* 
and »hen they ice the advantage of the guerrilla warfare 
method, they will quickly follow ihU example. But fint 
Ihcy tnittt respect the party which it transmitting Chit mes- 
sage. -When tbe Vanguard group drttroyi the machinery of

to ihU correct strategy. When ihc nitw hear that a grttapo 
policeman hat been executed while sipping coffee at a coun- 
ter and the revolutionary executioner* Red without being 
traced, the matvs will ace the validity of this type of ap- 
proach lo resistance . . . it i« important for the party lo show 
the people how lo go altout revolution." 

Panther Ideology 

The pro-Arab, pro Fatah, ami Israel posture of the 
BPP is the product of an ideology thai is an amalgam 
of the doctrines of Marx and Lrnin, Mao Tse-tung, 
"Che" Guevara, North Korean Premier Kim 11 Sung, 
Robert F. Williams (a black revolutionary who recently 
returned to the United States from self-exile in Cuba 
and Red China and who has long preached the message 
of urban guerrilla warfare in America) and of Frantz 
Fanon, the Martinique-born psychiatrist who took part 
in the Algerian revolution and advocated violence for 
"colonized" peoples. 

While most American blacks consider themselves the 
chief victims of the race prejudice that taints American 
society, few share the Panthers* view of black people 
in America as an exploited "colony" class in an oppres- 
sive white-controlled "mother rountry." Nor do they 
agree that freedom and equality can only be achieved 
by destroying the capitalistic system of the "mother 
country" through a revolutionary class war. On the oth- 
er hand, the Panthers, referring to the U.S. as "Babylon" 
and "AmeriKKKa," say that each person is either part 
of the solution, or part of the problem. 



Frequency quoting Mao TV-lung, that "political 
power comtJ through the barrel of a gun," the Panthers 
see themselves as engaged in the same kind of struggle 
being wagejj by tlic Viet Cong in Vietnam and prcvious- 
ly by revolutionaries in Algeria and Cuba. 

Like most of the Radical Left, the Panther* view At 
Fatah as fighting a similar war of national liberation 
against Israel in the Middle East. They regard Israel 
as an oppressor nation and a tool of American capitalist 
imperialism, and they parrot the Arab propaganda line 
that the Jews in Israel have no right to a laud which, 
they say, belongs to the Arab Palestinian*. 

In this ideological framework. The Ittark Panther 
provides a ready forum in the United Slates for the Arab 
cause and for A! Fatah. And some of I lie pro-Arab, 
pro- Fatah, anti-Zionist, and anti-Israel Panther pro- 
nouncements have a blatantly ami Jewish thrust. 

Israel, Zionbm, Jcics 

On December 28, 1969, The Washington Pott puls- 
lished a Reuters dispatch from Algiers repotting lhat 
Eldridge Cleaver, self-exiled Panther Minister of In- 
formation, and Yasser Arafat, Al Fatah leader, had 
embraced and kissed at the first International CongTess 
of Committees of Support for Palestine, attended by- 
some 200 delegates representing groups supporting Al 
Fatah in its warfare against Israel. Aiaf.it rrpnrtcdly 
rejected a peaceful solution of the Middle Fast crisis 
and Cleaver delivered a speech dcsrrilx-d in the dispatch 
as "a fierce attack on 'Ameriran Zionists.*" Cleaver was 
cj noted as having declared: 

"We can no longer allow Zionist to point to the bones 

of the victims of Narism and blind tit in the piles of bone* 

they arc miking of the PaWine norplr." 

Renins said that Cleaver had stressed the role played 
by a number of Jewish Americans, including Arthur 
Goldberg, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.K.. and 
Hrnry Kissinger. President Nixon's foieign affairs ad- 
visor. The dispatch added: 

"Cleaver said Jewish intellectuals were helping Nixon 

formulate hit domestic policies and addrd that Mark Panther 

kadftt Htiey Newton and Hobby Scale were tent to prison 

by 7 ion in magistrates." 

(Cleaver was rc|>nricd to have dented lhat the Pan- 
thers are ami Semitic, contending that the parly it 
"ami imperialism, anti oppression, anti-slavery" and that 
it was necessity "to make a distinction between Zionists 
and |rwt Iterative iliere arc young radicals who arc also 
of Jewish ..rS' K in.") 

Cleaver sY.k also interviewed by I J Monjahid (de- 
sciilx-d in an A«s<Hi.iied Pi ess dispatch from Algiers as 
"the nfliiiat Algerian nt ivsp;ij«r") , and icjKtitedly dr- 
t laird: "Viniiisn, ulinncr they may lie, arc our enc- 

Cleaver was f*nlh<r quoted as asserting that in the 
United Stales "ilu- Zioni-.t* are user! to torj>cdo the 



struggle of our people for its liberation." In an Algiers 
interview with a reporter for The Washington Post, he 4 
provided what he claimed was an example. Commenting 
on the investigation being planned by an unofficial citi- 
zens "Commission of Inquiry" into the recent clashes 
between police and Panthers in several American cities — 
a commission to be headed by former Supreme Court 
Justice Arthur Goldberg — Cleaver was quoted as stat- 
ing: 

"The power structure it trying to take control of the sflin- 
aiion by using a well-known Zionist and appointing Unde 
Tom Congressmen like (Illinois Democrat Clurle*) Diggs 
and (Michigan Democrat John) Conyert and two well-known 
and discredited Uncle Toms like Roy Wilkint and Whitney 
Young to erect a facade of concerned and official responsi- 
bility. 

"Here comes Goldberg Investigating a group (hat ft a 
threat to both the Uncle Toms and the Zionists." 

Also interviewing Cleaver in Algiers, veteran magazine 
editor and writer Don Schanche, despite his own gener- 
ally understanding altitude toward the Panthers, minced 
no words in describing Cleaver's anti-Semitism as "viru- 
lent" and "growing." In the May, 1970 issue of TAe 
Atlantic, Schanche quoted Cleaver as saying: 

"1 think it'i rexy functional lo be down on Irish, Italians, 
An»lo Saions. and Jews. I think thai black people have an 
Interest in exacerbating the anlagoniimt between these ethnic 
groups. I'd like to ace them at each other's throats 

Schanche added: 

"And every day. no mailer where we were in Algiers, he 
talked disparagingly of Israel. 'I'm talking about Zionism, 
hut I think that all Jews, particularly in the United States, 
have a responsibility to understand what Zionism is, what's 
actually happening in (heir name. They have been vkiinv 
ired by a lot of manipulation by Jewish capitalists. like 
United Jewish Appeal. When It comes to this whole ques- 
tion of Israel, they're all paralyzed. It's nccexsary to make a 
distinction between Zionists and Jews, between Jewish slum- 
lords and Jews, Jewish capitalist I and Jews." 

". . . Later discussing Al Fatah, he said, "We want to be 
just like those dudes.* " 

Cleaver's statements in Algiers were not the first in 
which the anti-Jewish thrust was obvious. The Black 
Panther of December 21, 1968, published a Jong diatribe 
he delivered at Berkeley, Calif., a speech in which he 
made the following statements: 

"We're going to call a spade a spade, a Jew a Jew and a 
pig » pig " 

"If ihe Jews like Judge Friedman are going to be allowed 
to function, and come to their synagogue* to pray on Satur- 
days, or do whatever they do down there, then well make a 
coalition wilh the Arabs, against ihe Jews . . ." 

"You see you got some good Jews, some bad Jews, and 
they're some Jews who need kilting. You got some Anglo- 
Saxons who need killing-and they got some niggers that 
need killing. You got a whole lot of people in (his country 
who are out of order." 

More recently, the BPP paper has published state- 
ments by other Panther spokesmen in which the anti- 
Jewish thrust was patent, despite the transparent eamouf. 



^' 



flage of their "ami-Zionist" verbiage. For example, m 
iu issue of April 25, 1910. Connie Matthews, interna- 
tional coadinalor of the party, commented on ilu* 
"Chicago X* trial. stating in part: 

"It was^a Zionist judge, Judge Hoffman, who allowed the 
other Ziorfisis to go tree bui hit kepi Bobby Scale in jail - ■ ." 



She added: 

"The other Zionists ii 
sacrifice Bobby Scale . 



he . . . trial were trilling and did 
, to gain publicity . . ." 



(None of the other defendants in thr trial, some- of 
whom were Jewish, profev.es Zionism. Quite the ion- 
trarj', in fact.) 

Miss Matthews" ttatements were part of a larger at- 
tack on the so-called "White Left" whom she charged 
with failing to follow Panther Icadeiship and with be- 
ing "in a state of confusion and bewildeiment" because 
it "is comprised of a large percentage of the Jewish 
population." She explained that after the BPP an- 
nounced its stipj>ort of the Palestinian guerrillas, "the 
White Left started floundering and became undecided. 
This leaves us with no alterntaiivc than to l>elicvc that 
a large portion of these people arc Zionists and are there- 
fore racists." 

The May 19, 1970 issue of The Black Panther con- 
tained a statement sij-ncd by Zayd-Malik Stiaktir of the 
Harlem Branch or the BPP. lie said in part: 

"AVe are ami-Zionist expansion in the Arab world ami 
Zionist exploitation here in Bahyltm, manifested in thr 
robber barons that exploit in in the garment industry anil 
the bandit merchants and gieedy tlumlonU that operate 
in our communities." 



Pro-Arab Propaganda Thome* 

Panther propaganda denouncing Israfl often comes 
from Arab sources — for example, AI Fatah materials 
re-published verbatim in The Black Panther. At other 
limes, Arab propaganda themes are picscnted by the 
party's leader* and spokesmen in their own extremist 
vocabulary. 

Among the more common Arab propaganda themes 
promotrd by the Panthers: 

• Israel is fascist and Na/i-likr. 

• Israel is an aggressor. 

• Isiael is a tool of Western and Ameiiran iinjurrial- 
isni. 

• Zionism is a reactionary movement, spawned by 
imperialism. 

• The Arabs and AI Fatah are fighting a war of na- 
tional liberation. 

• A peaceful settlement in the Middle East is not 
acceptable to the Arabs; the Arahs must and tWII 
fijdil to victory or death. 

• The Arab cause is linked to the Panther simple 
and the struggle of colonial peoples ever) white. 



Fatah manifestos published by. the Panthers and BPP 
leaders' own statements frccpienliy strike more than one 
of these themes. For example, The Black Panther of 
August $0, 1969. devoted a full page to an article by 
Don Cjox, BPP Field Marshal, published under a bold- 
face, scare headline that read: ' 

"ZIONISM (KOSHER NATIONALISM) + 
IMPERIALISM — FASCISM." 

Ox's aiticle, covering at least four of the basic themes, 
stated in part: 

"The Zionitt fascist stale of Israel is • puppet and lackey 
of the irapci ialist and mutt be smashed. Reparations mux 
be made to all displaced people, all the people who were 
forced to flee and abandon their hones by demagogy (lying 
and deceiving) and terror (fascism). Alt the property stolen 
by the Zionist* with their fztcitt storm uoopcrs led by 
Moshe Dayan ami the aid they received from the imperialist 
mutt be returned to the people of Palettinel . . . 

". . . what the Zionists and the State of Israel did and arc 
doing to the Atahs can be and i« equated to what the Naris 
did to the Jens. 

". . . Zionism it nothing more than negative, backward, 
rcariionary nationalism-Jewish nationalism. Kosher nation- 
alism. The philosophy of Zionism is reactionary nation- 

The October 25, 1%9 issue of The Black Panther 
devoted two full pages of small type to a speech Eld- 
ridge Cleaver delivered lieforc an international conven- 
tion of Communist journalists held in Pyongyang, capi- 
tal of Communist North Koica, late in September. In 
the speech, the text of which was adorned with por- 
traits of the Panther leader and North Korean Premier 
Kim II Sung, Cleaver stated: 

"The VS. imperialist aggressors mutt cease their role of 
merchants of death and destruction who are guilty of financ- 
ing and arming and protecting the arrogant, Naii-like Zion- 
ist lanrl grablien who have usurped and plundered the 
Fatherland of the Palestinian people." 

The May 19, 1969 issue of The Black Panther pub- 
lished the text of a message sent to the Panthers by the 
Information Department of the Popular Front for the 
Liberation of Palestine, an Arab terrorist organization. 
Appearing under ihc headline, "Arab People Deter- 
mined to Fight Until Victory or Death," the message 
promised a "people's war that will subdue the techni- 
cally advanced imperialist forces" and added this salute: 
"The P.F.L.P.. afier getting to know what you aim for 
and fight for, announces that it supports you moiatly. It is 
the liberation that we fight for. We are all in the same 
iKMt, faring the same F.M-MV. LONG LIVE THE REVO- 
MHION AGAINST 1MPF.R1AMSM." 



Panther Cartoon* 

The anti-Israel thrust of the Panthers* propaganda 
is often articulated through the cartoonist's brush svield- , 
cd for The Black Panther by Emory Douglas, the- party'*. 
Minister of Culture. While fur several ycais l)<»uj;lasV 
handiwork has been mainly confined lo depirting police- 



ib 



men as pig* being stabbed, shot, or otherwise dismem- 
bered by Panthers, several issues of the Panther paper 
in the spring of 1970 devoted full pages lo multi-color 
Douglas cartoons that singled out Israel, "World Zion- 
ism," and "American Imperialism" as their chief targets 
— always depicted as pigs. 

The March 21 issue, for example, devoted almost the 
entire back page to a cartoon showing two pigs — "VS. 
Imperialism" and "Zionism" — kissing, snout to snout. 
The pig labeled "Zionism" wore a black eye patch and 
held aloft in one arm a religious sceptre crowned with 
a Star of David. The entire front page of the same 
issue was devoted to another multi-color Douglas car- 
toon — a massive pig labeled "U.S.A." suckling two pig- 
lets, one labeled "Israel," the other "West Germany." 

A March 28 cartoon, tinder the headline, "If the Enemy 
Refuses to Get Out Annihilate Him," showed two bul- 
let-riddled pigs, again labeled "U.S. Imperialism" and 
"World Zionism." 

The April 11 issue devoted its back page to a Douglas 
cartoon featuring a group of pigs labeled "U.S. Inv 
perialistn," "Britain," "France." "West Germany," and 
"World Zionism." "World Zionism" was depicted suck- 
ing a baby's bottle filled with dollar signs and held by 
the pie lalielcd "U.S. Imperialism." "World Zionism's" 
disirndrd slomarh was shown bursting, with a dollar 
sign minting through the rupture. Accompanying text 
r.iriird derogatory material about each of the "pigs-** 
With trsiK-tt to France, for example, the text referred to 
Frrmh Pirsitlcnt Pompidou'* connections with "The 
Roilmhilds." 

Panther* and Fatah

At Fatah were two reports broadrast by CBS News Cor-

Another 1l'<ne1ei new*, im from Algiers later the same 
d.iv «ont.iine.l t.iinr jilitiii'oul details. The CBS cor- 
ie<pniidriii now lejw.neil: 



IACIS — 311 



lldridge CJeava. the Black Pan (her leader who b living 
In Algiers, has accepted an invitation from Al Fatah, the 
main Palatine Arab guerrilla organization, lo viril ha bases 
In Jordan. A spokesman of Al Fatah told CBS News that 
Cleaver would be leaving here la a fortnight for a stay of 
two or three weeks, and the visit will other in t period of 
solidarity and cooperation between Al Faiah and the Black 
Panthers. Thii will begin, be said, with exchange* of dele- 
gations, and he continued, It Is now under discussion to . 
tntn Black Panther leaden in Fatah base* and lo hare 
Black Panthers lake part in Fatah operation* in the Middle 
East . . . The Al Fatah spokesman added that Black Panther* 
were already being trained In North Korea, Cuba and North 
Vietnam." 

The CBS dispatches followed other reports of several 
private meetings between Cleaver and Arafat In Algiers 
during the meetings of the Congress of Committees of 
Support for Palestine on December 25-28, 1969. 

It was reported that Cleaver and Arafat had discussed 
mutual cooperation and support and that Cleaver had 
offered the Panthers' help for any acts of terrorism 
Fatah might request — in the United States, Israel, or 
elsewhere. Cleaver reportedly told Arafat that the Pan- 
thers stand ready to destroy any embassy or other in- 
stallation the Fatah might want destroyed anywhere. 

Cleaver also told Arafat the struggles of the Panthers 
and the Fatah were directed against the same enemies — 
Jews, the United States, and others. Cleaver said the 
Panthers had trained their people for any action, even 
for suicide missions. 

Arafat reportedly said (lie time had not yet come for 
such activities outside of Israel, but that such a time 
eventually would come. 

In the meantime, the reports said. Cleaver and Arafat 
had agreed to set up a continuing liaison, committee 
and Arafat agreed to a request from Cleaver for supplies 
of "military" equipment. Including — when necessary — 
the training of the Panthers in the use of such equipment 
by Fatah experts. 

PantJicr Party Program 

When Newton and Scale launched the Panthers in 
l%fi, they called it the Black Panther Party for Self- 
Dcfcnse and placed heavy emphasis on persuading black 
people in the Bay area ghettos to arm themselves against 
the police. Along the way the phrase "for Self-Defense" 
was dropped. 

In launching the party, Newton and Seale promul- 
gated a "Ten-Point Program" that remains the basic 
credo of the parly. It is reprinted in full each week in 
the back pages of The Black Panther, but often seems 
to be overshadowed by propaganda appeals to violence. 

Each of the ten basic points of the program — much 
of which is unassailable — is followed by a paragraph 
of discussion setting forth reasons for the demand. The 
ten demands are: 

"I. We want freedom. We want power to determine the 
destiny of our Black Community. 



"2. We want full emplojroent lot out people. 

"$. We want in end lo the robbery by the CAPITALIST 
i»f our DlJfl Community" [Tnii point originally referred to 
"robbery >y while racist busincumen" and the change »p- 
pran is [reflect the increasingly MaralM orientation of the 
Panrhcrsfcn recent year*.] 

-4. wl want decent housing, fit for shelter of human 

•5. We want education for our people that exposes the 
Inie nature of thb decadent American society. We want 
cduraiion thai teaches its our true history and our role fit 
the present-day society. 

lenpt from military 



-7. We want an immediate end to POLICE BRUTALITY 
and MURDER of black people. 

-*. We want freedom for all black men held fn federal 
Mate, county and dty prisons and jails. 

"9. We want all black people wlien brought to trial to 
be tried in court by a Jury of their peer group or people 
from their black communities. a« defined by the Consti- 
tution of the United Stale*. 

"10. We want land, bread, homing, education, clothing, 
justice and peace. And » our major political objective, a 
United Naiiorti-Hjpcrviiied plebiscite to be held throughout 
the black colony in which only black colonial nibjecu will 
be allowed to participate, for the purpose of determining 
the will of black people ai to their national destiny." 

The Ten-Point Program concludes with the opening 
lections or the American Declaration of Independence, 
asserting the right of the people to "alter or abolish" 
governments which become destructive of "life, liberty 
and the pursuit of happiness" and "to institute new 
government" 



Panther Organization and Growth 

The BPP first attracted nationwide attention in May, 
1967, when an armed contingent of party members led 
by Bobby Scale invaded die California capitol at Sacra- 
mento where stricter gun control legislation (opposed 
by the BPP) was under consideration. The party never- 
theless remained essentially a local organization until 
mid 1968, when it entered a period of rapid growth 
ft om coast to coast. 

By May. 1970, there were approximately 40 Panther 
chapters and affiliated units in operation around the 
country. The Panther-affiliated groups include "National 
Committees to Combat Fascism" or "Community In- 
formation. Centers," which function just as the BPP 
chapters so, and are under the control and discipline 
of the BPP National Headquarters, recently moved from 
Berkeley to Oakland. The name "National Committee 
to Combat Fascism" was originally meant to apply to 
new "anti-fascist" local group* composed of black and 



white radicals, but sttch working ronlitiom never mate- 
rialized. The "Community Information Centers" re- 
flect an effort by the BPP to develop a formal apparatus 
for its local community programs ami political activities. 
They may also indicate a desire to operate under ban- 
ners that are not immediately identifiable with the party 
itself. In this respect, the names of wme of the "Cen- 
ters" are of interest: A short-lived St. Paul "Center" 
was .called the "Martin Luther King-IIuey P. Newton 
Community Center." In Ml. Vernon, N.Y., a unit was 
called the "Nat Turner Community Information Cen- 
ter," and in Reading, Pa., the unit was simply called 
the "Reading Community Information Center." 

In any case, despite some obvious organizational 
problems, the Black Panther Parly is today a nationwide 
organization whose revoJulionary message and activities 
appear to have made certain inroads in black commu- 
nities across the roiinlry, especially among the young- 
most Panthers, in fact, tend to fall into the 16 to 35 age 
bracket. 



Membership 'Purges* 

The party's growth in the latter half of 1968 was so 
rapid that during the following year, Panther leaders 
felt obliged to rid the organization of unreliable and 
undisciplined newer members. 

An article in The Black Panther of January 25, 1969, 
bearing the headline "Panther Purge," announced that 
"in order to preserve democratic centralism and destroy 
ultra-democracy within our ranks," the BPP Central 
Committee had decided "to purge members within the 
Parly to rid ourselves of opportunism" and "petty bour- 
geoisie" individualism, lite statement added that "all 
those who aspire to opportunism arc directly related to 
the repudiation of the dictatorship of the proletariat . . ." 
The Guardian, an independent radical newsweekly, 
reported in its February 1, l%9 issue that the Black 
Panthers had "launched a campaign to purge its ranks 
of 'fools and jackanapes' " and quoted Sealc as staling 
that the party was "lightening" its membership. He told 
the paper that the BPP would artrpt no more members 
for three months "while wc intensify our political edu- 
cation." During the months that followed. The Black 
Panther published frequent, and sometimes lengthy, 
lists of former BPP members who had been purged 
from the ranks of its branches throughout the country- 



The 'Time'JIarri* Poll 

A recent survey of attitudes and opinions in the Ameri- 
can black community, conducted by public opinion 
analyst Louis Harris for TIME Magazine and pub- 
lished in the April 6, 1970. "Special Issue" on "Black 
America 1970." suggested that sympathy and support for 
the Panthers may be even more widespread than is in-

the spearhead of a coming American revolution. 

Periodicals of esublished Radical Left groups tuch 
a* the Communiu Daily World and People's World and 
the Trotskyi*t Militant, have devoted »ub*untia1 and 
mostly sympathetic coverage and help to mobilize their 
own followers in support of the Panther*. Further 
coverage and support comes from the so-called "under- 
ground newspaper*" — (cores of weeklies published in 
cities across the country that cater lo youthful radical*, 
"hippie" elements, and others who often participate 
in radical leftist protest demonstrations. The circulation 
of the "underground press" has been estimated to run 
a* high as 2,000^000 and it is serviced by several "under- 
ground" news services. 

Other sources of Panther support are leftist news- 
papers and magazines unaffiliated with any specific 
groups. These include such weeklies as The Guardian, 
published in New York; The Movement, a New Left- 
oriented paper published in San Francisco; and lefl- 
orienled magazine* such as Ramparts and Evergreen. 

The Panthers have enjoyed sympathy and support 
from some elements in the while community who ap- 
pear to be unaware of, or unconcerned by, the party's 
revolutionary and violence-prone po*lure and who in- 
stead think of the BPP as merely an ultra-militant 
Negro "civil right*" organization. These include, for ex- 
ample, some clergymen who have made their churches 
available for Panther meetings and community activi- 
ties, sttrh a* the party'* free breakfast program for ghetto 
children: individuals prominent in the art* and entci- 
laimnent world who have contributed money or raised 
it from their friends for Panther bail and defense funds; 
segment* of the college and university community; and 
writer*, journalist* and intellectuals who have published 
ariirlcs sympathetic to the Panther*. 

A barometer of the growth of Panther impact in the 
last few year* is the substantial increase in the circulation 
of The Black Panther, Circulated almost exclusively 
in the San Francisco Bay area in mid-1907, it is now 
*o!d nationally — mostly on the streets by Panther mem- 
bers and other vendors, being hawked at 25c" a copy— 
and has achieved a circulation of 100,000, about half of 
which is still said to be concentrated in the Bay area. 

Another yardstick of the increased Panther impart 
in ihe last two or three years is the number of speaking 
engagements filled by party spokesmen. During 1909. 
Panthers made 189 appearances at secondary schools, 
college* and universities alone — compared to 11 such 
appearance* in I9G7. the parly's first full year of op- 
eration. 



Tactical Shifts 

In the wake of the arrests and trials that have sapped 
their leadership cadres and their financial resource*. 



% 



the Panthers have shifted tactics several timet in the last 
year or to. 

(During the latter half of I960, the party Inrgati to 
re|a.ch out for allies and supporters in the Radical Left 
mjovement and to try to moderate it* image at an or- 
ganization of gun-carrying guerrilla warriors. In many 
locations, the black berets and black leather jackets that 
have become the Panther uniform were no longer worn. 
Rifles and shotguns were rarely earned on the street* 
as had been the case earlier where, as in California, 
the carrying of such weapons on the streets was legal. 

In the same period, heavy emphasis was placed on 
community programs designed to "serve the needs of 
the people" — the best known of these being the Panthers' 
free breakfast programs for ghetto children, actually 
combination breakfast-and-indoetrination sessions. The 
BI'P also sought to develop free merlical service pro- 
grams in some cities, and in the summer of 1969, launch- 
ed so called "Lilwration Schools" in indoctrinate young- 
sters after school or during summer varlion. Jn some 
~H areas clothing drives were conducted and the proceeds 

( distributed to ghetto residents. In other areas, the party 

conducted campaign* against the use of narcotics by 
black youngsters. 

Another significant tactical move, also apparently de- 
riving from a conviction that die party was in an essen- 
" tially defensive position during the middle of 1969, 
was the BIT sponsorship of a so-called "l>nited Front 
Against Fascism" conference held July 1R-21. 1969, in 
Oakland. The conference was preceded by a number 
of articles in The (flack Panther branding the United 
States as "fascist" and by several excerpts from speeches 
made during the 1930s by Comintern leader Gcorgi 
Dimitrov calling for the formation of united fronts be- 
tween Communist parlies, other left-wing groups, and 
libera] forces against the Nazism and fascism of that 
period. 

The U.F.A.F. conference was an apparmt move to 
solidify Panther relationships with sympathetic groups 
on the Radical Left and to rally these diverse and often 
feuding forces around a Panther program that empha- 
sized the freeing of so-called "political prisoners" and 
the establishing of local community control by ghetto 
reside nu over local police forces. At the conference, 
the Panthers called for "political freedom for all prole- 
tarian type organizations" and the development of a 
"national force" into a "front which answers the basic 
desires and needs of all people in fascist, capitalistic 
racist America.** 

? ' The conference in Oakland drew about 3,000 persons, 
alwiit 10% black and 90% white, most of the latter 
being students. The San Francisco Chronicle of July 22, 
1%9, said the gathering of "5,000 radicals" ranged 
"from old-line Communists to campus militants . . ." 
The Guardian of July 2G, I9f>9, said that ihosr present 
"included the leadership of SDS, members uf women's 



liberation groups, the Communist parly and a n 
of white left groups." 

Among the major sj>cakers were. Panther party 
man Bobby Scale; Communist Paity theoretic' 
bcrt Aptheker; several SDS leaders; Dr. Nathan 
director of the Black Studies Department at stril 
San Francisco Slate College; and a number or 
radical activists and ideologues. 

As part of the Panther program aimed at local 
munity control of police forces—die symbol of "fa 
to BPP members and supporters — the parly insti 
conferen/e participants to circulate petitions dcm.i 
such control and announced plans to form some 
50 United Front Against Fascism Committees to 
the distribution. 

In die wake of the conference, the Trotskyist Sf 
Workers Party, the Maoist Progressive Labor Part 
some New Left elements charged that the Panthc. 
entered into an alliance with the Communist 
and that CP influence at the conference was ol 
These elements view the CP as "revisionist," 
ist," and "counter-revolutionary," and branded th 
ferencc and the alleged Panther-CP alliance as a 
ward step in the revolutionary struggle in Amen 

The Panthers have neither confirmed nor deni 
alliance with the Communist Party. In an int 
with The Guardian, published August lli, 1969. P 
Chief of Staff David llilli.ncl was quoted as stati 

"We arc not aligned with the CP. The CT b an auto 
controlled by Cm Halt. Wr arc aligned with faction! wi 
the CP who want lo move toward* a better •ociety" 

Fairly in 1970, however, the Panthers appeared 
placing less emphasis on the need for a "united 
with other Radical Ix:fl elements, and less empha< 
on the free breakfast program — although it wa* 
that sue!) programs were still being operated b? 
Panther units in various parts of the country. 

Instead, during the early months of 1970, The 
Panther began to rc-emphasize guns, weapons, am 
lutionary slogans against "fascist repression" wl 
saw as pervading the nation. Pictures of M-IC ant 
rifles again began to appear throughout the paj 
they had consistently appeared until about a year ■ 
During March and April, 1970, the paper ran a 
of articles by Field Marshal Cox on "Organizin 
Defense Croups," featuring pit litres of a wide 
of revolvers, pistols, rifles, shotguns and other u 
and presenting detailed instructions on rare and

however, is that different Panther chapters refiert the 
:ir : '.7.z *:-pSa.s;s of d-fftrent periods,; *ome »tre"ir.g 
such lt» violtnt activities as the breakfast program, 
others the emphasis on arms and weapon*. 

Despite these surface variations in the tactic* and ac- 
tivities of local units, there is little doubt that the BPP 
functions under strict discipline. The /Infer of the Black 
Panther Party, issued by national headquarters and pub- 
lished every week in the party paper, lay down strict 
regulations for individual conduct, require daily report* 
by every member and officer, attendance at regular po- 
litical indoctrination classes, and political work in the 
community. Rule 25, moreover, categorically states: 

"AH chapters mu»t adhere lo the policy and ideology laid 
down b) ihe CENTRAL COMMITTEE of the BLACK 
PANTHER PARTY." 



Finance* ' 

Tc-siininny in June, l%9, by two former Panther 
parly officials before ihc Senate Permanent Sub-Commit- 
lee nu Investigations indicated that late in 1968 and 
early in 1%9 the P.PP was receiving gross monthly reve- 
nues of between $50,000 and $100,000. More recent esti- 
mates plare the Panther income at between $ (0,000 
and $60,000 a month— somewhere between $-150,000 and 
$750,000 a yc;ir. 

The Panthers draw on a variety of financial sources. 
.Sjxcial defense funds for arrested and imprisoned Pan- 
ther leaders, such as BPP founder Hucy Newton, appear 
to have been a lucrative source of funds for the party. 
(Newton was charged with murder in the death of an 
Oakland policeman during a gun fight between police 
and Panthers in October, 1967. In Scptcmlwr, 1968. 
he was convicted by a jury of voluntary manslaughter 
and was sentenced to prison for two to 15 years. The 
ca<c was appealed and in May, 1970, the California 
Court of Appeal reversed the conviction, one of the 
grounds being that the trial judge had omitted certain 
necessary instructions to the jury.) 

While Newton awaited trial in late 1967 and early 
196R, the P.PP had set up the Hucy Newton Defense 
Fund, which apjwaled for contributions from radical 
groups and individuals all over the world. "Free Huey" 
!>er:iiiic a Radical Left slogan and numerous rallies 
and fund-raising affairs were field throughout the United 
States. How much money was collected is not known. 

The Panthers also derive some revenue* from the 
sale of The Black Panther, and of books, pamphlets 
and literature, posters, buttons and recordings, as well 
as from lecture fees and honorariums for public speak- 
ing engagement. In his recent book, Sei'i* the Timr. 
party chairman Scale indicated that lecture fees ranged 
from $500 lo $1,000 caih. and that during one period. 
he alonr nn mil In,", 10 m 12 su<li a|>|trjr.iii"t m**, 



The Senate iiivoiligators in June. 1969, heard testi- 
mony that the Panthers have received "large donation* 
from members r>f the advisoty committee, a part of the 
Black Panther Party." Tlie witness, who had worked in 
Panther national hradrptaricis, then at Berkeley, testi- 
fied that the advisory rommittcc "consists of many people 
who arc in positions where they arc well known either 
locally or nationally, or internationally; and they be- 
come mcmbcri Iktousc they are sympathetic to the 
rausc. Some well-known figure* are actors and actresses, 
doctors, and political figures." 

Testimony before the Senate sub-committee and re- 
ports from authoritative sources also indicate that during 
a 19t'»8 election alliance between the 1JPP and the Califor- 
nia Peace and Freedom Parly, the BPP rereived substantial 
monetary support from the PFP. (In that campaign, 
Kldridgc Cleaver was the PFP candidate for President 
of the United Stales, even though loo young to meet 
the Constitutional requirements for that office. Huey 
Newton was a PFP candidate for the U.S. Congress, 
Mrs. Kathleen Cleaver for a seat in the California State 
Senate, and party leader Bobby Scale for the State 
Assembly.) 

The emphasis by the Panthers on free hot breakast 
programs for ghetto children, free medical services, 
and other community projects led to speculation about 
how these programs were being financed. 

The best information indicates that local merchants 
doing business in black neighborhoods have been *o- 
lirited — sometimes pressured — by the Panthers for con- 
trihutions of cash, goods, or both. Some stores that 
balked have been the targets of Panther boycott efforts. 
Testimony bcfoic the Senate subcommittee, for example, 
showed that a leaflet bearing the name of the BPP 
had been circulated in Oakland, Calif., during June, 
l%9, urging boycott of Safeway Stores, a major super- 
market chain that was charged with refusing to donate. 
An article in the Philadelphia Itullelin of July 13. 1969. 
rejmrled that the Panthers were distributing lists of 
companies that Ii3d refused to contribute milk, food or 
money for the breakfast program there. 

Arcording to the Wall Street Journal of August 29, 
1969, Daitch-Crystal Dairies. Inc., which operates Dailch 
Shopwell supermarkets, a large chain in the New York 
area, was contributing to the Panther program, as was 
Dairylca Milk Products, Inc., a firm that docs $*00,- 
000,000 worth of business a year and that distributes 
throughout the Northeast, lite president of Dairy lea 
was quoted as saying: 

1 They didn't ihrcalrn. but they adtcd In m<h a way that 
i tre knew we might be opening the door in had publicity If 
) we dldn'l give. We nin a lot of route* alt over this area, 
and we don't want to male any enemies." 

In Pcckskill, N.Y.. former location of one of several 
Panther offices in New York State, local merchants 
received two separate messages for donation' to Panther 



programs. The first, circulated in the. spring of 
announced the launching of i local BPP breakfas 
gram and stated: , 

". . . the equivalent IikJ of 2/ worth of food per do 
taken In. of ibe peoples choice, would he collected fi 
toe merchants ... In ih if manner, a part of the money i 
b ut.cn out of the community and fpmt elsewhere, can 
par to good use in the community." 

The letter concluded: 

-In thii way. she Tanthcrf inu-nd not only 1o meet 
iikhi ba»ic needs and dcshei of the Slack community, 
also to cia« the negative bnprcwi'in that ha* been drop 
on the'party by the raciil-owned and oriented news met' 

A few n tun tin later, in September, the tone < 
Pcckskill Panthers Iwcamc har»hcr as they anno 
a "Free Clothing for Children Program." The 
stated: 

"We are demanding thai all ■nnrhanii who rob and 
ploit our community return some of the profiU that t 
lake from our community by donating clothing and 
plie* . . . 

"The oppressed cpininunitir* wclnnrte your coopers' 
We would like lo set up an appointment wirh you to di- 
the detaib of your donation." 

An article sent in by the Kansas City branch 
BPP and published in The Mack Panther of M 
19G9, reported, in part: 

-The Black Panther Tarty ha« . . . bounded the avarir 
businessmen infesting the Black Community, who rob. 
and (obscenity] Black People. Some of them have e

Summary

ment agencies, tlie purging of its own ranks b) . 
leaders, the decimation of its leadership cadre, a ! 
Icvelling-off of its membership at roughly onc-tl 
one half its jieak strength, the Black Panther Pa 
nevertheless scored significant successes since it w:

Panthers asft, ., . -. ^nenu on the Radical Left may 
eventually terve r. U*ii\d the strength of Far Right re- 
action. 

The Panthers, moreover, have overseas ties and alli- 
ances inimical to the United States. Support radiates 
toward Panther headquarters in California from Peking. 
Hanoi, Havana, Algiers, Pyongyang, and from Al Fauh 
headquarters in the Middle East. Radical Left move- 
ments in Western Europe, Canada and Latin America 
likewise lend their voices in support. Such worldwide 
support, along with the widespread publicity and noto- 
riety the BPP has achieved in the domestic mass media, 
teem to give the Panthers an impart far out of propor- 
tion to Uieir relatively small membership. 

As a result, flic activities of the Panther* have con- 
tributed substantially to the racial and jxiliiieal polari- 
zation that has taken plarc on the American scene in 
recent years, helping to feed the "hacklath" and the 
reactionary mood of repression that hat shown signs of 
growing around the country. 

Like to many Radical Right and Radical Left move- 
ments that have appeared through the decades in the 
Western World, the Panthers have included anti-Semi- 
tism in their propaganda arsenal. They have salted their 
manifestos with the time-worn canards and stereotypes 
used by anti-Semites for years. They have made common 
cause with the Arab forces in the Middle East that are 
waging a war of destruction against Israel. 

In their all-out support for Al Fatah, the Panthers 
have attacked Israel with the rhetoric of Arab and anti- 
Semite alike, and when they have come under criticism 
for doing »o, they have fallen back on the ancient 
wliecre of the anti-Semites wbo denounce Zionists be- 
cause they hate Jews — the spurious claim that they are 
only anti-Zionist and anti-Israel, not anti-Semitic or 
anti-Jewish. 

The Panthers are, finally, in major measure symptom* 
of the malignancy that infects America — its unsolved 
racial problem. Unless and until American society, in a 
new consensus, moves massively to confront the challenge 
of this problem and to resolve it, the nation will con- 
tinue to be plagued by extremist organizations taking 
their cue from our failures, some of them committed 
to violence and revolution, others to violence and re- 
pression. 

The threat to democratic institutions posed by the 
armed and revolutionary movements of the Far Left is 
a cause for concern that the overwhelming majority of 
Jews share with their fellow-citizens. The anti-Zionist, 
auli-lsrael, pro-Arab and often overtly anti-Jewish propa- 
ganda and activities of the Black Panthers and tome 
of iheir extremist allies, however, pose a special and 
direct ronrcrn to Jews in the United States — a concern 
undoubtedly shared by the overwhelming majority of 
non-Jewish Americans, both blark and white. The 
need for continuing this deep concern seems unlikely 
to diminish in the near future.

BUDED: 8/14/70. 

ReButel to Baltimore and other offices, 8/6/70. 

At present, the Black Panther Party (BPP) , New Haven, 
is publishing a weekly flyer entitled "Panther Trial News**, 
copy enclosed, which gives the Panther version of the 
trial of L0NNIE MC LUCAS, presently on trial in New Haven, 
Conn. , for murder of ALEX RACKLEY, alleged BPP informer. 
This flyer is widely distributed in the New Haven area, 
and as a counterintelligence measure It is suggested 
that a similar flyer be prepared to coincide with the 
distribution of the next issue which is to be distributed 
on August 16, 1970. The counterintelligence flyer would 
state generally the events of the trial and then give 
opinions and statements that would be detrimental to 
the policy line of the BPP yet they would have to take 
full credit for the flyer. This measure may tend to 
disrupt their method of loosely passing out leaflets 
in the New Haven area. 

Also included in the counterintelligence leaflet would be 
certain things that will show Huey Newton in an unfavorable 
light by his own party, such as his philosophies about fighting 
in Asian countries and not dealing with the matters at hand 
in the U. S. 



>ui 
/da 



If Bureau approval is given for above proposal. Bureau, 
if possible, is requested to prepare Xerox masters utilizing 
the format depicted on the enclosed flyer, and thereafter 
New Haven will incorporate the proposed message of the flyer 
as related above. One master would be Issue no. 7, dated 

tgust 16, 1970, and the other would be Issue no. 8, 
dated August 23, 1970.

WHAT'S REALLY HAPPENING AT THE TRIAL OF LONNIE MCLUCAS 



Published Weekly by the 
Panther Trial Newt Committe 
532 State Street, New Haven 
Issue no. 6, August 9, 1970 



On Ajtil 22, 1970, George Sams testified that 
Black Pan iher .Chairman Bobby Seale gave the order 
to kill an alleged informer/Alex Rack ley. Despite all 
the plea bargaining, testimony of police agents and the 
like which have surrounded this case, George Sams Jr. 
remains theory evidence incriminating Seale. At the 
time of the hearing, a request by the defense that Sams 
undergo a psychiatric examination to determine his 
competence was granted. Had he been ruled incompe- 
tent, the state would have been forced to grant bail to 
Bobby Seale. 

The results of that "examination" and Sams' history 
which made it necessary are especially relevent at this 
moment because this past week this controversial man 
took the stand to testify against the first of the New 
Haven Nine , Lonnie Mc Lucas. 

Sams' past life has been a tumultuous one, spent 
largely in and out of institutions. Acquaintences 
of his in Detroit have called him a braggart and a 
brawler who wanted to be called "Detroit George." • 
Because of idiosyncrasies such as packing a revolver 
under a used choir robe (his "dashiki"), he was more 
commonly known as "Crazy George." 

Sams' Detroit associates were hardly the only ones to 
question his sanity. Authorities in New York committed 
him to Wassaic State School where he was termed "men- 
tally defective" and a "moron." Shortly thereafter he 
was institutionalized a second time in Napa nock, N.Y. 
at the Eastern Correctional Institution. This time he 
was called an "immature, unstable personality of border- 
line intelligence." At Napanock, his I.Q. was said to be 
75, or 5 points above the level for confinement. At one 
time, while serving as a body guard for Stokely Car- 
michael, he drank an entire pitcher of water which he 
had been tasting for poison, naturally halting the meeting 
and bewildering the audience. 

With respect to the Rack ley case, the Panthers charge 
that it was Sams, operating on his own demented 
initiative or in conjunction with police agents, who 
engineered the killing of Rack ley. With all of this 
in view, defense attorneys naturally questioned whe- 
ther the testimony of Sams could be grounds for re- 
fusing bail to anyone. 

It was a' doctor appointed by the state who conduc- 
ted the "ixamination." He testified on Tuesday 
that Samf was capable of "reporting accurately, satis- 
factorily and completely events in which he was a par- 
ticipant or to which he has been a witness." 

When Dr. Robert B. Miller said that Sams' attitude 
was one of "warmth and cooperation" and that he 
.showed "no evidence of any disorder of feeling or 
mood," defense attorney Theodore Koskof f began to 
Investigate the nature of that examination before the 

- / T 



F 

n wflat he base 
sr be classified 



court. Koskoff asked Dr. Miller on wlat he based hfc 
diagnosis that Sams could no longer be classified 
mentally defective, the witness responded that when 
he had entered the room in which Sams was sitting, 
Sams rose to offer him a seat. This "showed that in 
growing up Sams had earned respect for elders." He 
rejected Koskoff's suggestion that Sams might be 
manipulating him. 

Koskoff registered visible surprise at the Doctor's 
testimony that he had gotten virtually all of his infoi 
mation about Sams from Sams himself. When Koskc 
reminded the doctor of Sams' having been termed 
mentally defective. Miller responded that he "now h 
the proper stimulation to improve his situation," 
that (obviously as an example of "proper stimulatic 
Sams had said that he had learned to play chess in ja 
Koskoff asked whether the doctor believed everythii 
that Sams had said and Dr. Miller, despite his know- 
ledge of Sams' history, said that he had no reason nc 
to believe him. Also, Sams' I.Q. has apparantly in- 
creased since he was tested in New York. Dr. Miller 
testified that it is now 85. 

Finally, Koskoff asked whether it might be possib 
that all of the drugs Sams was taking could have caln 
him and masked his violent nature during the examir 
tion. Dr. Miller said that he had not checked the pri 
medical record but he was sure that drugs would not 
have made a difference. Koskoff noted that Sams is 
now taking tranquilizers, pain killers, skin medrcatic 
darvon, phenobarbrtol and a central nervous system 
depressant. He also brought out the fact that, despii 
Sams' ability to "report accurately, satisfactorily are 
completely," he could not say what the names of th 
institutions he has been in are or in what state they ; 
located. 

The entire examination, according to the doctor, 
two hours and was a "short cut to affirm my own d 
cal evaluation." The defense motion that another d< 
tor of their choice examine Sams was denied despite 
simple fact that lives could depend upon that man's 
actions. In fact. Judge Mulvey apparantly felt qualil 
after the doctor's narration of a 2-hour exam, to say 
Sams "is not insane and never was insane/', 

Sams' testimony is nearly entirely contradictory 
the testimonies of Panther Frances Carfer and forme 
Panthers Loretta Luckes and Warren Kunbro. 

He, along with Landon Williams, (another of the 
Nine), arrived on the East Coast from National Heac 
quarters in Oakland in May of 1969. While Sams say 
that he was sent to "straighten out" the East Coast 
Party, National states that he would never have beer 
trusted with so important a mission and that his / 
coming here with Wilhams at all was due to a "mix- 



d-Q>, ~\'\\:f$j) 



Sams testified that Rack icy 'f^fe-s^e in New Haven 
^s voluntary. He spoke of •;*« the Panthers beating 
, ■ ^ackley after Sams was instructed by Landon Williams 
.to discipline him. Sams said that he gave Rack ley 
/ $3.00 for abu^jfjer telling him that he should not be 
in the Part/TAcoording to Sams, it was Kimbro who 
told Rackfty to remain. 

The inffcnous tapes were made by Sams, and for 
reasons wftch are not very clear. He made them, 
he said, bet a use he feared Rack ley would die and he 
knew that National would demand to know why disci- 
pline had gone that far 

Sams attempted to reverse the roles into which alt of 
the other witnesses have placed him and Lonnie. He 
spoke of Lonnie pouring hot water on Rack ley and of 
his (Sams) pouring cold water on him and wanting to 
take him to the hospital. 

Insisting that Kimbro was present (Kimbro claims 
— -wDflver to have seen Seale at his house) when Chairman 
Bobby said, "What do you do with a pig? You kill a 
pig. Off him." with reference to Rack ley. Sams said 
he was* reprimanded by Williams for being "too 
lenient." 

According to Sams, Williams also ordered him to kill 
Lonnie and Kimbro, too„if they got nervous At this 
point, Sams becomes slightly incoherent. He men- 
tioned being ordered to kill Chicago leader Fred "Hamil- 
W ton" (presumably "Hampton") at a counterrevolu- 
J tionary. He also spoke something about having been 
under "people's arrest" for mate chauvinism but of 
escaping when police surrounded the house. He also 




^ 



mention^. ,1 >ut-up in Kunstler's lady friend's 

house af m xh$ murder. The introduction of Kunstler 
name into this case is either absurd or intentionally 
provacative. 

Cross-examination of Sams began t 
Sams testified that he and DiRosa disc. 
"dozens of times", yet when he chang& 
statement, he attributed it to Di Rosa's f 

incorrect version of his statement. His rh „ .„„ 

Kimbro's is better now than it was, especially with 
respect to incriminating Lonnie. 

As Sams began to speak of his original source of in- 
volvement with the Black Panther Party, the founda- 
tion of his animosity towards Seale forms. From the 
beginning - he joined in Stokely's orders - he argued w 
Seale and was eventually expelled by him for stabbing 
a brother in the leg, although Stokely got him back in. 

Sams bitterness towards the Party is harder to pin- 
point. He says that it is going "too communist" and 
that for that reason he pleaded" guilty. He gave reason; 
why Rack ley was murdered neither of which is terribly 
logical. The first reason was to put a scare into the Ne 
Haven chapter and the second (most illogical in view o 
Sams' opinion that Rack ley was not really an informer 
was to avenge the New York 21 bust. 

Sams admits to initiating the torture of Rack ley bu 
says that Rack ley had the power to leave whenever 
he wished. He revealed his dislike for Lonnie when he 
said " Lonnie said, 'Right on.' That's all he ever could 
say." 

Cross-examination of Sams will continue on Tuesday

RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 
(BLACK PANTHER PARTY) 



Reurlet 8/7/70. 

The cogent arguments set forth in relet to dispute 
the 10 -point program of the Black Panther Party (BPP) have 
considerable merit as a means of rebutting BPP propaganda. 
However, prior to approving this counterintelligence technique, 
you are requested to resubmit your "Like It Is" argument for 
"point number 9. Jince the 9th point of the 10-polnt program, 
referring to the right to trial by a Jury of one's "peers" 
Is a valid point, standing on its ovn, it is not believed that 
a direct refutation of the point Is warranted. Instead, you 
may want to submit an oblique refutation based on BPP distortion 
of this point as exemplified by BPP "kangaroo trials" of 
suspected police informants. 

You are requested to promptly resubmit argument 
number 9 to the Bureau for consideration, after vhlch you 
tflll be advised of the Bureau's decision in this matter. 
{5 You are reminded to take no counterintelligence action In 
this regard without prior Bureau authority.

BLACK PANTHER PARTY WITH 
1ER PARTY 



•LIKE IT IS" 
"LIKE IT IS" 



We want power to determine the 
destiny of our Black Community. 



We want full employment of 
our people. 



We want an end to the robbery by 
the capitalist of our Black 

Community. 



We want decent housing, fit for 
shelter of human beings.

she can be out of contact with 
the Party without being disci-

2. The destiny of the Black 
Community is to be ruled by the 
Party. Have you ever told a 
Black Panther "no" when they 
asked something of you? 

3. The words "our people" is the 
catcher. This really means 
the people of the BPP. 

Have you ever been helped by 

a BPP member to get a job? 

Ho! Ask any member the last time 

he tried to get a Job for himself. 

THE ANSWER WILL BE, "I GOT ONE," 

"I WORK FOR THE MOVEMENT." 

Webster's New World Dictionary 
states that a capitalist is one 
who has capital. With that 
definition, the BPP is a 
capitalist organization, for 
the gross income of that 
organization would iar exceed your 
wildest dreams. Where does this 
money come from? You and me. 
Ever get any money . from the party? 
Who is robbing who? 

4. The finance of the BPP is out 
of sight, yet dig the pads that 
are set up as headquarters. You 
will say that it is the best they 
can do, or it is symbolic. Good, 
check the labels in the clothes 
of the leaders and then go price 
that "front" in the clothing 
store. Have you ever asked a 
Panther to aid in getting a pad, 
and all you get is double talk 
but no help, 



/9 / 



We want education forour 
people! that exposes the true 
naturJ.of this decadent 
AmeridVn society. 



We want education tta t teaches 
us our true history and our role 
in the present-day society. 



We want all Black men to 

be exempt from military service. 



6. 



That old Uncle' Tom talk, "I 
ain't got no good means of 
obtaining an education. The 
party or no one else can say 
that a good education is only 
for whites. Ask to go to any 
school, and you can go. This 
is a great talking point for 
persons who have not gone 
to school any longer than was 
necessary. 

I say to this part of Point 5, 
Right-on, but I can't say 
Right-on to the Party that 
takes kids that can't think 
for themselves on any 
subject, but play and drill 
into them to kill. Don't 
take ray word for it, 
drop by some times and lend 
an ear. You be the judge. 

Let's call a club a club and 
believe it, a club will be 
used by all countries, at 
odds with the U. S. on any 
person in the U. S. Man, ^ 
because you are black, don t 
exempt you if we lose*. 



7. We want an immediate end to police 
brutality and murder of Black people. 



Again, we have a standard cry 
of most persons who are k"°™ 
to break the law, and violentl 
object to being apprehended 
and punished for same. In 
today's work-a-day world the 
word brutality has had its 
fair share of abuse. Any 
time one is arrested and 
carried in for questioning 
the standard vanguard cry 
is "police brutality." U 
it really brutality? 
Or just a means of drawing 
attention? Then put Black 
in front of it, and everyone 
gets up in arms. 



/ 



We want freedom for all 
black men held In federal, 
state J county and city prisons 
and Jfils. 



\ 



We want all black people when 
brought to trial to be tried in 
court by a Jury of their peer 
group or people from their Black 
Communities, as defined by the 
Constitution of the United States. 



As has often been stated by those 
in authority or rule of Black 
Panther Party, we are in existence 
only to serve the prople. Now I 
ask you does this statement re- 
lease all Black men from prisons 
sound as though they are looking 
out for the best interests of the 
community? As in any Judicial 
system certain people that may be 
innocent, white or black, may be 
sentenced uitfjstly, but the 
statement "free all" is a little 
irrational. 

On this point I have but one 
question as is the question in the 

minds of many in the community 
when the Panthers state that all 
Blacks brought to trial should be 
tried by their peers. Are they 
referring to the type of trial 
that was held for their fo 



10. We want land, bread, housing, 10 
education, clothing, Justice 
and peace. And as our major 
political objective, a United 
Nations-supervised plebiscite to 
be held throughout the black 
' colony in which only black 
colonial subjects will be allowed 
to participate, for the purpose of 

determining the wi 11 of black people 
as to their national destiny. 



The point of one beingtrTed by 
his peers is Just and a good 
law, but a kangaroo court by 
a nf±£ui£j^g^j£j^Q£aroo^our t . 

I '"SfffnfflBl^^ were 
here^rTr^^^^WCjrcould tell 
you "like it is." 

Every item that is mentioned in 
point ten can be obtained by any 
individual that has the gumption 
to obtain same. The poetic state 
ment used In point ten which 
implies black separatism closely 
paralells that of another 
archaic group better known as 
the KKK. Black Panthers, Kluxers 
and any other group that feels 
that the races can live alone 
should only look at any country 
in the world and try to pick one 
that you find only one kind of 
individual or race. Impossible, 
isn't it? 

To the Panthers and any other groi'l 
tell it like it is and not like 
it ain't!

8. As has often been stated by those 
in authority or rule of Black 
Panther Party, we are in existence 
only to serve the people. Now I 
ask you does this statement release; 
all Black pen from prisons sound 
as though they are looking out 
for the best interests of the 
community? As in any judicial 
system certain people that may be 
innocent/ white or black, may be 
sentenced unjistly, but the 
statement "free all" is a little 
irrational. 



We want all black people when 
brought to trial to be tried in^ 
court by a jury of their peer 
group or people from their Black 
Communities, as defined by the 
Constitution of the United States. 



•0. He want land, bread, housing 

education, clothing, justice / 
and peace. And as ourmajor 
political objective, a United ' 
Nations-supervised plebiscite to be 
held throughout the black colony in 
which only black colonial subjects 
will be allowed to participate, 
for the purpose of determining 
the will of black people as to 
their national destiny. 



According to Random House, the 
definition of peers is "one of the 
same rank, quality, etc; an equal; 
match." On this point I am not 
too clear and if one thinks about 
it the point is an ambiguous 
statement. Only a criminal 
would want to be judged by 
\another criminal, and as the 
point states,"a jury of their 
peer group". 

If v this point is trying to say 
thai the Jury should be all black, 
again the Party has not defined 
the Constitution of the United 
States\as it does read. There is 
no mention of race when it cays, 
"tried bV a jury." 

. Every itcirt, that is mentioned in 
point ten can be obtained by any 
individual that has the gumption 
to obtain same. The poetic state- 
ment used in V°l n t ten which impli 
black separatism closely parralell 
that of another archaic group 
better known as the KKK Black 
Panthers .Kluxers and any other gro* 
that feels that the races can live 
alone should only look at any 
country in the world and try to 
pick one that you find only one 
kind of individual or race. ■ 
Impossible, isn't it? 

To the Panthers and any other groij 
tell it like it is and not like i ' 
ain't!

Re Bu airtel to NY, 7/3/70; NY airtel to Bureau,

Enclosed herewith for Stlanta is one copy of a letter 
Bigned "Concerned" and enclosed herewith for Knoxville is one a 
copy of a letter signed "A Friend". If 

For the information of Atlanta and Knoxville the Bureau 
instructed NY to submit a counterintelligence proposal designed 
to negate SNCC's attempt to obtain -a grant from the Inter- 
Religious" Foundations for Community Organizing fIFCO), 475 
Riverside Drive, NYC, to set up a ^'fftrm project* in the vicinity 
of Knoxville, Tenn. Equipment to be used on this "Farm Project 
is to be purchased in the Atlanta, Ga. area. 

By referenced airtel dated 7 A 7/70, NY proposed that 
the enclosed letters be sent to IFCO so that it would cast doubt 
in the minds of those IFCO personnel who deal with SNCC as to the 
sincerity of SNCC members in actually working their proposed 
"Farm Project". A 

Bureau approval on the above proposal was granted to NY 
by airtel dated 7/23/70, and NY was instructed to furnish copies 
of enclosed letters to the Atlanta and Knoxville Divisions?

Knoxville should mail its letter on or about August 4, 1970,

Atlanta and Knoxville should insure there mailings are

COUNTEillOTELUGENCE PROGRAM 
(BLACK PANTHER PARTY) 
lfc-448006 

^^Pwbllc source material is available to put the 
lie to^g Sl§ statement that the BPP If not anti-Semitic. 
You are referred to the following articles which appeared 
In "The Black Panther" newspaper indicating BPP support for 
Al Fatah and its opposition to the existence of the State 
of Israel: 

"The Heroic Palestinian Women," page 7, 7/26/69 
it sue; "Cleaver, Panthers Cheered in Algeria," page 16, 
7/26/69 issue; "Al Fath Speaks," page 2, 8/9/69 if sue; 
"Zionism (Kosher Nationalism) + Imperialism - Fascism," 
by- Field Marshall, D. C, page 20, 8/20/69 Issue; "Zionist 
Menace," page 14, 9/13/69 issue. 

The offensive language spoken by BPP leaders 
and anti-Semitic propaganda appearing in the Panther news- 
paper, if brought to the attention of college officials and 
alumni of Boston College, a Christian institution, and 
Bran dels University, a Jewish institution, would have a 
deterrent effect concerning future appearances on campuses 
of BPP officials. 

Boston and Nevr Haven should promptly submit 
counterintelligence recommendations to the Bureau for 
approval to utilize public source data to expose BPP anti- 
Semitic and unchristian posture to university officials. 
In this regard, you may consider anonymous mailings, friendly 
news sources, SAC contacts, et cetera. It is pointed out 
that you ihould take no action whatsoever to Implement any 
counterintelligence maneuver without obtaining prior Bureau 
authority.

(BPP) 



For the Information of the Bureau, and as the 
Bureau has been advised, the BPP is attempting to reorganize 
its office and membership in San Diego. 

In this regard, and along the same lines, a group 
of prominent Negro citizens in the Southeast San Diego area 
have organized a group called The Imperial Avenue Improvement 
Association, It is the purpose of this group to improve 
living conditions in the predominantly Negro southeast 
section of San Diego and to return more efficient law and 
order to that area. 

In view of the fact that the BPP is making 
attempts toward reorganization in San Diego, along with the 
fact that any such reorganization would be contrary to the 
desires of the above -°-.»-i rt n«/t.j«.nr#v tM >Tnnnf groun. Bureau 




felt that if the Bureau approves this activity J 
I group might possibly be in a position to 
preclude' tne "reorganization of the party through encouraging 
other businessmen who are members of the group to openly 
oppose the BPP.

Re Buairtel, 6/29/70. 

San Francisco has considered referenced Bureau 
airtel and is not in a position to offer any recommendations 
that would adversely effect the circulation of the Nation of 
Islam (NOD newspaper in this area. 

There is only one NOI Mosque in this territory. 
Informants report that NOI members pay in advance for the 
copies of NOI weekly paper and if any disruption occurs in 
the retail sale it would have little immediate effect on the 
NOI. 



r 




San Francisco does not wish to offer any sugges< 
tions that would result in only informants reducing their ' 
orders for newspapers as this would adversely effect their 
position in the NOI. Informants have also reported that 
NOI salesmen plan to work in pairs and they do not expect 
any "harrassment from undesirable elements."

himself MuhanmadjHBand who asked me to help him In plan 
to make money a^TWr expense. 

I am a salesman of used far.n equipment and 
machinery and I have always been noted lor my honesty. 

Abo ut one week agofR^ who said he was^B 
flBKK^Siiil^el "SNICK" Club in Georgia (Carmicjhael s old 
TRSpTrSSPfntroduccd to »c by a friend. E|| said he 

wanted to buy junk farm equipment and thaCT^ould pa y 

the price of new equipment for the junk. 

I told BHf that it soun^-Jike he was crazy 
and was throwing TTsmoney away. J^^said he wasn t 
crazy and that if I would just K«™Ttitlcs for the Junk 
equipment ho would give the titles to the Inter-Religious 
Foundation for Community Organizing, 475 Riverside Drive, 
New York City, and tell them that ^ he yJj£££^ on l? d n ? v . a 
equipment. Then your group would pay^gg^as though he 
had brought brand new stuff. 

^^B^said we could go 50-50 on the difference 
between whatTTie junk cost and what your organization gave 
us. 

Now I have my reputation to protect and I will 
not get involved in any criminal activity. I am a Negro 
and it has taken a lot of hard work to get where I am. 

I hope this information may help you.

It is noted that Seattle counterlnteri:tgTnc&<p¥og*am'- iV 
is not active which is occasioned by the fact that the BPP in 
Seattle, Washington, is involved solely in activities of political 
and neighborhood good will nature. These projects are not 
conducive to counterintelligence programs and it is felt that ^ ' 
any attempt to work a counterintelligence program directly L_ '<$$* 



against the BPP may not be in the Bureau's best interest j^V 

Reference is made to above Bureau letter, June 19, 
1970. Seattle has conducted a survey of potential targets and 
it is felt that the individuals that the cited program could 
be directed against are not suitable for this situation: The 
feeling of this is through an extensive analysis of these 
individuals through the agents working and/or having knowledge 
of those individuals of the BPP.

The SNCC Is a black extremist organization head- 
quartered in New York City with active chapters in Cincinnati. 
Ohio, and Atlanta, Georgia. Prior information developed by 
New York Indicates SNCC has placed a request for a grant of 
$67,000 with the Episcopal Church Screening Board in 
New York City to finance its operations, one of which is 
a "Liberation school" In Atlanta, Georgia. Request for funds 
for the Atlanta operation are reportedly being processed : 
through the Atlanta Episcopal Church organization in such a 
manner as to preclude the church's knowledge of the school's 
connection with SNCC. Ne« York Office has recommended anonymous 
mailing from Atlanta of two letters allegedly from local 
businessme n engaged in' t he sale, of school supplies protesting

In compliance with Bureau Instructions, set forth in

to obtain funds from the Episcopal Church in New York is set 
forth. 

It Is proposed that the two enclosed letters "be sent 
by the Atlanta Office to the Director, Episcopal Church Center, 
815 Second Avenue, New York, New York. These letters should be 
nailed at least one week apart and prepared in the standard 
manner for counterintelligence correspondence. There should 
be some variance in the titles used In addressing these letters 
to the Episcopal Church Center. This will be left to the \ , 
discretion of the Atlanta Office. A)£\ 

New York feels that the receipt of two letters by the / 
Episcopal Church in New York, each of which alleges a similar 
fraudulent scheme directed against that church should have some 
affect on the proposed dispersal of Episcopal Church funds to 
SNCC in Atlanta.

May I take the liberty to relate to you at this time 
a strange turn of events which I recently participated in* 

I am by occupation a salesman of school books 
and supplies In the Atlanta, Georgia area and most of my 
business dealings are with Negroes* 



About one month ago I was approached by i 
" aimed to represent thp "T/ihgrAt lon School" at 

| made the following 

He indicated that the aforementioned school was in its 
formative stages and that it would be necessary to equip and supply 
it with materials which could be furnished by my company. 

|m indicated that of course he expected some consideration 
for placing orders with me and I of course a^rgiy^Djee that all 
consideration possible would be furnished td(g Mand his 
school. Wow "consideration" to me normally means giving the 
school official who places an order with me some extra books, 
equipment or a personal gift. 

But in this case,tt Bwlshed me to enter into 
what he described as a "good deal for all" • 

The planHpB9Hb proposed to me was that I was to 
submit to him bills and purchase orders for equipment and supplies 
received or due without ever actually delivering or ordering such 
things! 

S Eft indicated that I stood to make at least 
$2,000 on tills "good deal". 

As an honest Christian, college educated Negro I was 
shocked when I heard this offer but I must admit I was tempted to 
explore this situation even further. 

I askedSGHHfa J u8t wno was £ oin 5 to P av for * ne malce 
believe school supplies and he told me to rest easy as "Whitey was 
going to get stuck with the bill". 



Wl 



f 



■<* 



_ I figured he meant the State of Georgia and I told, 
did not want to end upon a chain gang in Valadosta 



tOia<- 
gplnj 



i 

•PS^SS assured me that the "Whitey we wer 

£k" *mTfheEpiscopal Church in Hew York City. 1^ 
old me that the Episcopal Church in New York wSS-glving 
ight unseen to his "Liberation School" and that there 
would he "enough of the pile for everyone . 

I thought this deal over for awhile and have decided J: 
that it is not the Christian thing to do to' even think about such 2. 
a thing. I am still in a state of shock over it. J 

I am afraid to reveal my identity to you because of j 
the position I hold In my community as well as because I have 
been advised by a close confident that I mayjhavenajrticipated I 
in a criminal activity by even consideringEHB@BMP scheme# 



Let me tell you I have checked out^^^^^and I 
believe he will go forward with his plan. 

I hope this information is timely so you may be 
abel to protect yourself.

Recently an offer was made to me concerning a 
scheme which would appear to be of some Interest to you. 
First let me say that I own a bookstore In Atlanta, am white 
and wish to remain anonymous . 

^BfflWIBBffW*! wno identified himself as being 
of the Bap Brown Liberation School, Atlanta, Ga. appeared 
shop recently and inquired as to whether I could supply certain 
pre-Bchool primers on a volume basis for a liberation school 
to be operated by him and some associates and to be funded according 
to Smith by the Episcopal Church in Hew York City, 

. I toldBBl^fJuring this intial contact that I could 
supply any books he needed. All he would have to do was provide 
the number and publisher, I did not place much interest in 
his inquiry since he did not impress me as being at all knowledge- 
able about school texts, procedures, etc. Frankly I thought he 
was some type of flim-flam man and was expecting him to ask to 
cash a check. 

Approximately two weeks later he returned to the shop with 
. another individual who did not identify himself. This other person 
said very little, but from his remarks she was apparently from New 
York. At one point he mentioned the Episcopal C hurch Center in 
New York City as the "funding agent" ol 

After a few short remarks recalling our past conversation 
\ proposed essentially the following proposition. If I could 
provide him with false receipts for book sales made to the liberation 
school he would kickback to me 5<# of their face value. He explain- 
ed that he could then charge the liberation school the full face 
value of such receipts. I told him that I wanted no part of this 
scheme whereupon they both politely left the office without further 
conversation. 

fj^Hffi had^ntJjiate^that he had a contact the Episcopal 
Church New Yorkwg who he cou2^j^^4|^unds . 

To be truthful, However, Ig^pclid not infer iat|H^| ■ 
was in any waytaiowledgeaDleof what was going on, however, ne^lid 
Imply thatflS Hft would furnish the funds without any problem.
